I don't think the change I did before was WebKit specific. And the
changes (not committed) to svn-[un]apply only reflect the changes to
svn-create-patch, but are again not WebKit specific. These changes
ensure that patches are created and applied from the root of any SVN
Repository (which in fact is what git does by default and makes the
most sense by removing any possible ambiguity or forcing someone to
know which directory they should apply a patch). There has been some
loss of functionality , but that can be fixed.
 Create a patch without svn-create-patch which contains paths not
from the repository's root and then attempting to use svn-apply or svn-
unapply to deal with the patch.
These are the only changes I know of. If there are any others its
possible they may be WebKit specific.
